This!!

Since when does he have a fumbling problem?
Superbowl, preseason?

doing something once doesn't = a problem.
He did it in the superbowl and then when the niners played again this preseason, he did it again.

Did it in the Stanford-Oregon game in 2011.

Well no, but, he's short, black and fast, so we should automatically assume he possesses all of the ability and strengths of Darren Sproles.

Bingo.

When LMJ has accomplished something even remotely close to what Gore has he may be given a little latitude as well. A guy fighting to make the roster or even show he can play at this level should NOT be fumbling the ball. Not to mention doing it at crucial time in the fing superbowl.

he's only "fighting" to make the active roster because we have two stud rbs already

Dixon might be the odd man out. I think Dixon will get cut and LMJ becomes the 3rd string RB, and Moody takes over Dixon's spot on special teams.

That actually sounds like a pretty reasonable and likely scenario. Dixon's value to the team is almost nothing really. He's decent on ST's, but not great, and he doesn't add any value as a back.

This. LMJ would be better as the 3rd back. He would add more to the offense than Dixon ever did, and he's lightning fast, we saw that on display last year many times. Coaches need to design some plays with him as the "anointed receiver". Give him a drag route 6-8 yards deep with some blockers and he could very well take it to pay dirt, or clear out space with multiple rub routes. That would help the passing game a lot.

am glad to see our franchise is still alive. figured we would cease to exist due to the fact we did not get flash gordon today,, trying to find a place for james, trying to figure out a kick and punt returner and bringing guys back is on the list of things for them to do in the bye. i do not think this is a james vs dixon thing. james is going to have to earn a spot on the team and i think it starts with kick returns. unless something has changed from pre season, he still can not return a punt for s**t and can not pass block, kyle gave him a opening so lets see if james takes it

after what kyle did sunday, i would think the return game is wide open for anyone. if james can not win the job now with the show we saw from kyle sunday,,, he deserves to stay inactive for the rest of his natural born days

LOL...no cc...he is arguing against a guy who has limited attempts on a team loaded at his position. Dixon looks all world this year in limited play and Hunter looks pretty mediocre...does that tell you their value? No.

Just watched, timing is a hoot, Jim Harbaugh's press conference where he stated that one of the things the team really needed to do was get James more involved and soon...too much talent to be ignored. Perhaps he was blowing smoke--trying to gin up interest in a trade...but maybe he was saying James needed to be involved and soon...too much talent to be ignored.

Its too late for a trade, and the point I was arguing is somewhat what you just said, the team is loaded at RB without a doubt, but its been proven by players activated and deactivated by Harbaugh that you have to earn your time on the field. Obviously there is something Hunter is doing right or something the LMJ is doing wrong thats keeping Hunter ahead of LMJ. I also find it ironic after the joke we call a #2 receiver does terrible returning ball that Harbaugh would mention getting James more involved possibly its a subtle hint to LMJ that someone needs to step up as a return man because what we have isn't working.

Thanks for directing me to the right thread! LOL...I do get lost at times! I really like Hunter and James and believe James will eventually be a very valuable player. But it's really difficult to break through experience on this team with JH as the coach. He values experience, as do I, so very few rookies have been starters. Reid is amazing this year and is a very wonderful exception. James wasn't nearly as NFL ready and perhaps is developing slower than JH expected...don't know.

I was being playful in the other thread, making the absurd comparison of the 9er record to the Philadelphia record, but my underlying point was we can't really know how good Kelly will be or how good James will be until a little further along in their careers. I agree that it is up to James to take a position or become relevant as a player. I see him as a better kickoff returner than a punt returner but that again may be experience versus eventual talent.

But Lattimore may make this a moot point if he comes in and blows Hunter and James off the field!

I absolutely agree, and i get lost in what thread im in at times also. I think the issue could have possibly been NFL readiness and possibly fitment in this offense, We seem to run much more up the gut then we do around the line which is where I do think Hunter has the upper hand on LMJ. Personally on the last part about Lattimore I dont think Hunter or LMJ speed running positions will be the one in danger, if Lattimore can make the miraculous full recovery hell be shooting for Gores bell cow spot.

I think he was being sarcastic, as was I. But yes, I know a handful of people here saw a quick, small running back and immediately said SPROLES!
